Ken Smith notes: A religious/sci-fi/drivers education film. "Rusty" is a spy from Mars (see Destination Earth). He looks like a bug with big eyes and tiny wheels, but in this late-fifties blob art universe he also looks like a car (the story line for this film would not have been possible if America had better taste in design). Lots of geometric shapes bounce around while a jazz quintet honks on the soundtrack. Rusty notes that cars are "slaves" on Earth ("Man, I mean, like, you know, they drive us ca-ray-zee!") and equates poor driving habits with theologic damnation. ("The right of way is not as important as The Right Way." "Reckless driving is a sin.")
The credit roll takes up the last minute-and-a-half of this ten minute film.
